A girl is disappointed when she receives a chicken as a birthday gift from her abuela, until she realizes the chicken is planning a bigger present for her special day.
Cute book! I must admit that I didn’t figure out what the chicken and other pets were up to until the very end of the book. What a surprise for the girl – and me!
